How to Apply QwikQuote PDF Print Service Hotfix

QwikQuote PDF Pinter Service is a new module that is developed premium for QwikQuote Cloud Edition of our sales Quoting Software and invoicing software with quotation templates ready out of box. This is because in the Cloud environment there will not allow an application package to install device driver as the present QwikQuote release using QQPDF printer driver approach to create PDF file of the sales quotes in an Quoting Software and invoicing software setup.

Shortly after it first build, we encountered the situation that the new security requirement in Windows Server 2008 R2 Terminal Service environment and Citrix new App server environment that has more restriction to allow application software program to dynamically create device driver such as QQPDF printer driver does. Also we encounter some issues on Windows 64 bit Windows Vista and Windows 7 computers with third party anti-virus and computer protection program tools that made the normal Windows users having insufficient rights to dynamically create device drivers as QQPDF Printer driver has done in the past 19 years. In those cases, the new module QwikQuote PDF Print Service works fine in create PDF file for sales quotes in the quoting and invoicing software system. And it is much faster than QQPDF Printer Driver approach.

However, it is relatively a young boy compared to the QQPDF Printer driver approach that has over 19 years history. It is imaginable that over the longevity of our Quoting Software and invoicing software there are all kind of situations and all sorts of layout files from less than 20K to well over 50 megabytes. We will continuously release new versions and hot fixes when QwikQuote users encounter new issues with this new module and fixes the bugs found out.
